Original 1920s 20s Vintage Cream Blue And White Floral Crepe Drop Waist Blousy Dress With Integral Slip
This wonderful rare dress was made in from a lightweight crepe in the 1920s. As you would expect the dress has the classic drop waist associated with the decade. A rounded neckline is adorned with an integral sailor style neck tie. A similar integral tie is also present around the drop waist, below which are horizontal panels, which add further interest. The dress has an unusual blue and white cornflower flower pattern on a sandy background. Under the lightweight silk of the bodice is a cream coloured internal slip, which creates the blouson effect of the top. The dress can also be worn with the slip hanging loosely inside, in which case it falls into a straighter silhouette with an even lower drop waist.
Bust: 35” but intended to be worn loosely
Drop Waist: 33”
The dress is in very good condition throughout with only a tiny hole to the neckline of the slip and some very slight colour bleed to the underarms.
